cite that is if you have more take home pay from lower middle class tax rates which is in romney's plan if he believes in it, that gets people through the income problem. that's why this thing should work. now, how is it that mitt romney can't get that message down? how is it that he can't explain that to people? he's a very brilliant guy. what's the problem here? >> well, it is a good plan and you know he's got the good mechanics behind his plan and he's had a tough month with respect to being stuck on talking about process questions a lot. and frankly, i think republicans are ready like steve said for a choice election. i think the country is ready for a choice election. and would he have moving would moving to the next phase where romney has to articulate the choice if our country.next phas romney has to articulate the choice if our country. i think he's prepared to do that. you look at the advertising strategy they adopted just yesterday. it's mitt talking more specifically and more directly to middle class voters about how his plan whether create jobs. that's a preview of coming a

struggles that romney is having with middle class and working class voters on basically the question of can he identify with struggles, do you think he identifies with struggles? in ohio only 38% thought he could. the number for obama is 20 points higher. romney is basically running a platform you could call a top 1% platfor platform. i think of chris christie running the on the same platform but exude something completely dirch the. do you think a guy like chris christie would have more luck selling the republican message and might be closer in the race right now? >> it's possible, but you can never do a hypothetical race. no one knows how he would have worn through a long, drawn-out campaign. i like governor christie and support him on some initiatives. his overall persona, the bullying and tough guy, i'm not sure if that wears well over at long period of time. i'm sure how america reacts to that and how the average nonnew jersey it reacts to him on the boardwalk. you can't say things in a vacuum. i think the republicans nomin e nominated the wrong guy. the mitt romney who was governor a
shows is that voters -- more voters believe that barack obama has a concrete plan for helping the middle class than believe that mitt romney has such a plan. that's another problem mitt romney has. he had expected that the economy would win the election for him. all he would have to do is go to people and say, i'm not barack obama. i can do a better job. in fact, he needed to do a lot more. obama has laid out specific proposals. he's had a job for months now, but mitt romney has been very vague about his proposals for helping the middle class. >> you know what, this strikes me, just thinking now, listening to cynthia, he seems to are been running this campaign for the last six months as someone who expected the voters would want him. not that he would have to sell himself, his plan, his ideas. that the voters would want him as a white knight, coming in and rescuing the company, that is, the u.s. economy. and he didn't have to do much beyond that. as he's finding out, that's not the way the game plays if you want to be leader of the united states. >> there are chinks in his armor, by the

obama and 41% mitt romney. president obama focusing on middle-class voters today when my opponent said we should just let. by a wide margin ohio voters believe that obama would do more for the middle class. when you cut through the words you could look through the records and when you can see policies that have not created the jobs american needs and you know it's time to choose a new leader, and get america growing again and get a new coach. ohio has picked a winner in the last 12 presidential elections. during that speech the u.s. delegation stated the iranian president was using his trip to spouse paranoid theories and propulsive slurs against israel. he never mentioned israel by name and his speech was not as provocative as some had expected. the american music world lost one of its legends. andy williams has died. williams died last night at his home in britain misery he was 84 years old. one of the most popular singers of his time, three platinum records and 17 gold and posted a variety of shows in the '60s. still ahead, watching what you eat labels can sometimes be deceiving,
question, let's see details. >> what does mitt romney, what does the republican party define as middle class? if you look at martin feldstein's analysis, a romney guy you have to raise taxes on people making between $100,000 and $200,000 a year which is in certain cities decidedly middle class the definition of middle class is bipartisan issue. president obama defines it anyone making up to $200,000. if you're making 100,000, 150,000, 200,000 you're in the top few percentage points of this country. even in expensive places people making $150,000 have a pretty tenuous claim on being middle class when you look at the numbers. >> thank you to david leonhardt of "the new york times." great to have you onthe program. everybody should be checking out your reporting and making t shirts with those graphs to remind themselves of the realities of tax cuts. >>> after the break, a new gang of six hopes to stop taxmagedon. ally bank. why they're always there to talk. i love you, james. don't you love me? i'm a robot. i know. i know you're a robot! but there's more in you than just circuits and wire

in virginia beach and used romney's tax returns to make his pitch to the middle class voters. >> my opponent thinks it's fair that somebody who makes $20 million a year like him pays a lower rate than a cop or a teacher who makes 50,000. don't boo. vote! >> president obama won virginia in 2008, but the state went solidly for the republican candidate in the 10 previous presidential elections. >>> there are six more days of campaigning out there before president obama and mitt romney have their first presidential debate. >> there is a possibility we could see some severe weather this evening. topper will have the latest when we come back. >>> well, if you're north or west of town, you may be getting a little sign of the tough weather out there, top. >> it was 85, kind of a touch of summer today. well, we've got summer thunderstorms. in fact, most of the metro area is under a severe thunderstorm watch until midnight. let's start with that. we'll show you the watch. it covers just about everybody. it doesn't quite go up to frederick county, but it's not like the storms know to stop at the county
